Principles Of Solar Thermal Energy
Solar thermal systems convert solar energy into usable thermal energy. It allows you to demonstrate solar thermal heating of domestic water in an illustrative manner. A lighting unit simulates natural solar radiation and allows a range of experiments to be carried out in the laboratory. The light is converted into heat in an absorber and transferred to a heat transfer fluid. A pump conveys the heat transfer fluid through a hot water tank. The heat is released to the water by an integrated heat exchanger in the tank.
